Nov '09
FAST RETAILING CO., LTD. celebrates its 60th year in business this year. And to mark the occasion, the company will be thanks to customers for their support from Saturday November 21 to December 31, 2009.

This year marks the 60th anniversary since the establishment of Men's Shop Ogori Shoji in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan in 1949, the predecessor to today's FAST RETAILING CO., LTD. This year also marks another important milestone, the 25th anniversary of the birth of UNIQLO. The first ever UNIQLO store was opened in Hiroshima at 6.00 a.m. on Saturday, June 2, 1984. For 2009, the FAST RETAILING group is planning all sorts of events to express its gratitude to customers on this the 60th anniversary of the founding of FAST RETAILING and the 25th anniversary for the UNIQLO brand.

We have prepared a range of celebration campaign special price goods at our UNIQLO stores (including online UNIQLO store) and our g.u. stores. We will be opening 400 mainly roadside UNIQLO stores around Japan at 6.00 a.m. on Saturday, November 21, 2009 and remembering our original business spirit in the early days.

We have planned a joint event for all UNIQLO stores across Japan for Saturday November 21, 2009, where we will present the first 100 customers across UNIQLO stores to buy goods to the value of ¥ 5,000 and above with an original celebration tote bag.
